( i ) dimension characteristics

i)       one dimensional network:  line___________________________________________

geometry:    Two points, A and B, connect to form a line, which can extend to infinity.  This basic network structure of a single edge and two vertices forms a duality relationship between the separate entities, connecting them via a symmetric property of equivalence:  If A = B, then B = A.


transformations: line reflections_______________________________________________

A Line Reflection is a type of geometric transformation that maps any object, given by its individual components or coordinates, across any line.  In effect, the object is flipped and the image is symmetric to the pre-image, essentially reversing its orientation.

This transformation is an isometry – the distance between points is preserved:

The distance from A to B to C is the same as from A’ to B’ to C’ and

A to line m is the same distance as its reflection, line m to A’
